Question

Switch from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

Microsoft keep bugging me to switch from Windows 7 to Windows 10. The man who installed my software said some of my programs might not run in windows 10. Is that true, or would it be ok to switch to Windows 10? Why should I anyway? i.e., why is 10 better than 7? Thanks.

It's your call

This machine has w7.
It runs fine and does not give me any fuss.
Msft will support w7 until 2020.
If the machine last that long it will be time for a new one.
I'm not moving.

Windows 10

I upgraded mine to Windows 10, it worked great for a few weeks until my laptop mouse stopped working. So when I went to roll back to windows 7 , I could not I kept getting a start repair message so I had to do a factory restore. Then it took forever for the updates to appear. I did like Windows 10 while I had it, I only had Windows 10 for a few weeks. I have a Toshiba laptop I bought in 2010.. Oh and my laptop keyboard mouse worked perfect after the roll back..

Did you install drivers for these things after 10 installed?

I find that most folk hope for the best.

Drivers for Toshiba

The Toshiba website does not show Windows 10 driver updates for my Windows 7 Laptop..

Then it's one thing or another.

Either the W7 drivers work or something else.

I see you jumped into ibberyerkibber's post. Here I have some old Sony 2009 laptop and the W7 drivers are fine in W10.

But let me write this. For keyboard and mouse the native drivers are in use. Didn't need to find those. As to the start repair message I did run into that on other laptops and keep in mind folk only bring me machines with troubles. What was it? A failing HDD.

Switch from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

Its not fare to believe. Because Windows 10 taking the best bits of Windows 7 and Windows 8 as well as adding some welcome new features. Plus, the upgrade is completely free for Windows 7 owners: no strings attached.
I hope that Windows 10 will support all kind of programs and software.
